The replacement itself was easy enough, but it did not solve my problem - any advice would be greatly appreciated!
I have a Macbook Air 13" mid 2011, the battery only got to 121 cycles before it stopped holding a charge at all and I could only use the laptop when plugged into the power adapter. The battery status says "Not Charging" and the adapter status light does not glow when connected (it does function normally when plugged into any other computer, so the adapter is not the issue). The second it becomes disconnected the computer shuts down.
I just replaced the battery, one I ordered from iFixIt and the computer recognizes it, but it says cycle count: 0 and condition: replace now.
Charge Remaining (mAh): 2545
Fully Charged: No
Full Charge Capacity (mAh): 6620
Cycle Count: 0
Condition: Replace Now
Battery Installed: Yes
Amperage (mA): 0
Voltage (mV): 7575
I'm at a total loss for what to do next to solve this problem. Any ideas?
